<quoted text>As you had previously pointed out because of those policies GOP controlled states withdraw more from the US treasury, in effect letting the US gov't make up some of the difference in labor costs, in federal and state tax codes the are provisions helping to defray the cost of a move. further burdening the treasury.
And as jobs flow south so does population growth, creating new southern congressional districts. Assuring that there will be political muscle to back it all up
They have gamed the system...
Really, how did they draw it out.

That is also true along with what I said the net effect of employees seeking cheap labor and labor chasing jobs inflate southern and southwestern congressional rosters.

so if you owned a biz or factory, and had to choose between using union labor at high prices, or non union labor at low prices, to produce your low margin product, would you pay out more for the labor, or retain more money for the owners of the biz?

Good question let me answer it in two ways first as a capitalist.
As a CEO my job is to maximize return for the shareholders. Some of the companies that I have held shares of moved some of their operations, and I never counted it as a character flaw... to expect else wise out of a CEO is like expecting bird not to fly or fish not to swim.

However as a tax payer i resent my tax dollars ( in the form of tax incentives) being used to lure companies that are viable in their current locations. In New York we have IDA's (industrial development agencies) that dispense corporate welfare in the form of tax incentives. We payed, in the form of tax breaks for small business' to hopscotch from one municipality to another, the tax breaks used to lure northern business southward for the most part remind me of this.

Good News. Unless you are a spineless moronic Fool who elected your own worst enemies...the diabolical Calif verison of Democrats...you have no idea what it is like to be completely at the mercy of the proven Liar in Chief.

Over 1,000,000 mostly Democratic voters who voted for Obama have gotten the Letter cancelling the very health care policies he repeatedly PROMISED to let Americans KEEP.

And, NOT ONE elected Calif Democrat has stood up for the Democrats who sent them to Washington.

States with higher poverty levels with draw more in the form of support and give back less in taxes.
States with larger retiree populations (Floridia & Arizona) have the same et of dynamics.
I never said there was anything underhanded was only stating a fact
